Rokeya Sultana

Ina Puri (Author) S Manzoorul Islam (Author)

Rokeya Sulatana is an award-winning Bangladeshi printmaker and painter with recognitions in the 9th Asian Biennale and the National Art Exhibition, Dhaka; the 3rd Bharat Bhaban Biennale, India; and a residency scholarship to L’Atelier Lacouriere et Frelaut, Paris. Rokeya’s works have been widely exhibited. She is a Fulbright Fellow and has studios in Dhaka and Sydney. The poetic qualities of Rokeya Sultana’s artistic compositions reside in the mythical figures embedded in nature amidst harmony, equally perhaps, in their transience in life or in her depiction of the eternity of womanhood. The 220-page monograph with over 135 colour images, is a collaborative effort with the artist, resulting in a comprehensive presentation of her practice.  Published here; among rarely seen reproductions of earlier paintings, prints and drawings; is an insight into Rokeya’s personal connection to her homeland and the revelation of how time and place has affected the evolution of her work. Combining the diverse wealth of materials examined – artworks, photographs, essays and visual information -the book hopes to convey a coherent framework and exhaustive insight of annotated works that will communicate to readers, without lapsing into a cursory understanding of an artist’s oeuvre. A careful selection of more than forty years of work, this publication is a definitive monograph of the artist. Essays by art curator and documentarian Ina Puri, and literary critic and writer S. Manzoorul Islam, will give readers an insight into the life of the artist, contextualising time, and developing and deepening the critical understanding of artistic movements in the region.
